Things in Bamboo Forest weren't as they should be and it wouldn't take anyone who looked at it very long to figure out why either. The dark green leaves of the tree tops had been replaced by the bright pink and blue hues of cotton candy, that extended from the crystalline branches of Jolly Rancher trees. Bamboo Forest, or at least a decent portion of its northern area, had been transformed into a forest of candy. But despite wanting nothing more than to swing from licorice vines or shove piles of brownie dirt down his gullet, Didi knew he needed to fix the situation. Which he had assumed wasn't going to be much of a problem for him but oh boy had he been wrong.
After several failed attempts, Didi realized he was going to need more than a beginners understanding of magic to reverse what he'd done to the forest. Something that he hadn't even meant to do in the first place! He'd just been trying to turn a piece of candy into a person when suddenly the forest had started to change into candy instead. It had only been a single tree at first and he hadn't thought much of it at the time. Big mistake on his part, if he had taken it seriously from the start he might of been able to do something.
He needed help, he really needed help.

|| Tysco’s PL: 48,000 || PL Suppressed to 333 [UT1] Secret Identity is in effect ||
Once again out on his personal adventures of learning, Tysco had now surmised following his recent in depth research that there were several locations and mysterious relics across the world that would help him greatly in his current experiment to get the 6 Star Negative Dragon Ball to activate like it’s kin. This was what brought him to Bamboo Forest in the eastern regions of Earth. Unlike Fukurou Forest, the Bamboo Forest wasn’t bluntly known for any form of magic or mysticism. With the research Tysco had done, he theorised that there was a sort of twenty to one ratio of magic compared between the two locations with Fukurou being the obvious lead.
Tysco already knew a great deal about Fukurou Forest, he was not so arrogant or ignorant to assume he knew all of it’s secrets, for that was unbecoming of a scholar such as he, but the fact did remain— he knew a lot about it. This was a factor that drove him to once again leave the subconscious ‘comfort zone’ that was his rather frequent visits to Fukurou Forest. There would always be time for him to seek more knowledge among those trees, but he knew that right now it would not further his current goal.
So, having entered the boundaries of Bamboo Forest, Tysco first sought to check the few mystical locations he had been to in the past to get bearings of a sort— from there he could safely triangulate an estimate of where to go next by following any similarities within the ambient mana of both locations and any connections to the magical ley lines that existed all around the planet. First, Tysco made his way to the odd greenhouse, in the Garden of Beasts, a strange plot of land once owned by a looooong dead witch named Beri Blackthorn who had resided here centuries ago. He made sure to, as always, not be swayed by the ancient half-working spells placed around the area. Everything here was as he left it when he found Morticia and Russé here before when those two stumbled into the catacombs.
Satisfied with his cursory examination of the area, he made a mental note of where it was in relation to him as he flew off in search of the second location; a small shrine that Tysco had stumbled across following directions from the journal he had inherited. Shortly after his first visit, he ascertained the purpose of the shrine and gave it a new name— The Shrine of Wanderer’s Dreams— since the old name was lost to time. It was in similar condition as he left it, which was a relief. It seemed only the local fauna had been around here since.
With both of these two locations mapped out in his mind, Tysco began calculating where to go next as he extended his senses. Walking parallel to the closest mystic ley line he knew of, Tysco walked for about an hour, he could sense something... Strange somewhere up ahead, and he was nothing if not intrigued, so he picked up the pace, keeping his wits about him as he went. He slowed down once he got closer to the area of the ‘disturbance’ and looked around, things looked fine for the most part, but as Tysco was looking around, he was absentmindedly walking along the path, and he stood on a stick...
Or at least, it looked like one, because it definitely didn’t sound like one when he stood on it. It sounded like a chocolate coated wafer candy bar snapping in half. After a confused pause, Tysco stepped back and looked down at his feet— sure enough what he stood on looked like a stick, but it absolutely wasn’t one, at least not anymore! “What in the world..?” He mused, jogging over to a nearby tree to tap on the bark, only to accidentally smack a little dent into it. It was made of the same stuff as the stick he stood on! “...” Now this was a magical mystery and a half! Tysco could barely contain his excitement now! He knew for a fact that Bamboo Forest itself did not contain such magicks on its own, which meant this was likely the doing of an outside force; either a mage’s spell gone wrong, a haphazardly discarded relic— the possibilities were tantalizing! “Oh heck yeah I gotta get to the bottom of this!”
With renewed spring in his step, Tysco sprung off the ground and began to float onward along the path; and as he went further on, more and more bizarre alterations to the land became apparent. The path soon turned from normal dirt to crisp brownie topping and crumbled cookies, the grass around the trees now very much resembling gummis— the trees themselves were either chocolate coated wafer biscuits with waffles for leaves or crystalline like jolly ranchers with cotton candy leaves of blue or pink! Some bamboo shoots strung about the place looked more like candy canes and there were licorice vines here and there too! Now, despite his awe, Tysco was still well aware of his surroundings, and he sensed someone nearby; so he rounded the corner to see a Majin lad... Who didn’t look all too happy. “Oh! Uh, hi there? Is something wrong?” Tysco greeted the Majin with a wave. “You wouldn’t happen to know the cause of this... Admittedly quite marvellous magical mishap, would you?”
Flying above the trees of the forest, Zriracha was out and about on another impromptu adventure when she sensed something odd. Well, sensed as in scented the oddly saccharine smell of candy – so strongly that it nearly had her choke in the form of a coughing fit. “What in the seven hells-?!” She exclaimed through the fit of coughing, trying to get the scent of licorice out of her nose. It was only when she noticed the… odd arrangement of colors that didn’t fit the scheme of a forest did she realize something very wrong was going on here. Approaching the oddly colored trees, Zriracha landed along the ground only to give a wince when something seemed to SQUISH under her hoof. “Oh, that’s…” She lifted her hoof, giving a comical retching sound as something sticky and gooey stretched upward with it. “Oh no. No, no.” She quickly burned the chocolate fudge mud away and ignored the sickly scent of melted chocolate to continue on wards.
It took hardly a dozen paces before Zriracha was levitating, a grumble in the back of her throat at the sticky nonsense she’d have to deal with later. In a matter of moments, following the stronger than usual scent of power (as difficult as that was) the Satyr would surprisingly meet with an interesting pair.
Now she had an idea who was the apparent cause of everything that had taken a rather ‘sweet’ take, but she wasn’t expecting to meet a lavender-skinned Majin. Near said Majin was a rather tall and lanky fellow, striking amber eyes with what looked like decorative feathers around them. Zriracha landed along the ground, a shudder rushing up her back as touched the squishy ground, before she approached, “Care to explain this… decadent change, magician?” She questioned the Majin lightly, not at all upset but more so just curious and a tad bit concerned. She liked the forest the way it was before.
She tossed a glance towards the other, scenting that this one was a Demon as well. She gave a slight bow before speaking, “A pleasure to make your acquaintance, kinsman. Taking in the scenery?” She grinned, optimistically making light of this potential destruction of the forest.
With nothing he'd tried able to fix his mistake, Didi began to crack underneath the stress of the situation. The young Majin had never dealt with anything this serious before, and it showed. His eyes became puffy as tears began trickling down the sides of his cheeks. It was at this precise moment that Didi decided that he missed his father and wished that he was here to comfort him. Didi collapsed onto the ground and wrapped his arms around his knees, "I wanna go home!" he cried, his voice muffled by the fabric of his pants. Busy trying to keep himself from turning into a sobbing mess. Didi failed to notice that anyone else had arrived until Tysco had spoken to him.
He lifted his head from his knees, wiping away tears from his eyes as he looked up at the stranger. "Hello...." he replied quietly, his body squirming uncomfortably when questioned about the forest. Didi wasn't sure how to answer the question if he should lie, tell the truth, or simply not answer at all. It didn't help that yet another showed up and questioned him about the forest's sudden change. The responsible thing would have been telling the truth, but Didi wasn't sure how they would react. They were both adults, after all, surely they'd lecture him about being irresponsible. But if he did tell them there was a chance that one of them would be able to reverse what he'd done to the forest.
Didi looked down at the ground guilty and bit down on his bottom lip. "If I tell you what happened, do you promise not to yell?" he asked, unaware that he'd just indirectly ratted himself out.
